Do you have problems with Veeam Entpoint Backup or Windows Backup fails with VSS error 12289 on a iMac? Just disable the Apple HFS driver and reboot. I use Autoruns from Sysinternals for that:
After that you have no access to the OS X HFS partitions, but for me this is no problem. I haven’t use that any time.
1. Get Disk-ID from Disk Utility.app (“disk1” in my case)
2. Open Terminal
3.Change current directory to:
4. Run vmware-rawdiskCreator with the right disk. This will create a new external-hdd.vmdk file in your home folder:
./vmware-rawdiskCreator create /dev/disk1 fullDevice ~/external-hdd ide
5. Open Vm Config file (*.vmx) with TextEdit and add following lines:
ide1:1.present = "TRUE"
ide1:1.fileName = "external-hdd.vmdk"
6. save and quit
